Fleeing the Shadows is a stirring, nail-biter of a read and will be sure to please fans of the first book of the series….the story rips right off the page…for a historical YA novel, Still does not hold back on making sure that we feel the desperation of the family in every chapter…Still has a great YA voice that carries the reader away with her pages. —Literary Titan
Wholly enjoyable, and quite intense and shocking at times…this is a historical series to take note of and one I definitely want to keep following. —The Miramichi Reader
